Cowboys vs Panthers: Tashard Choice Runs Well | NFL Player Rankings
This was a crucial game for both teams as the Cowboys and Panthers faced off on Monday Night Football. The game started out slow as both teams failed to score in the first quarter. As the game moved on the Cowboys flexed their muscle and beat the Panthers 21 to 7.
Felix Jones Impressive Before Injury
Second year running back Felix Jones got the start for Dallas as Marion Barber was out with a quad injury. When Jones got his hands on the football he was explosive with 94 rushing yards on only eight carries. He also add a 20 yards through the air on only one catch.
Unfortunately, for the Cowboys (and fantasy owners) Jones went out of the game in the third quarter with a knee injury and didn’t come back.
Tashard Choice then ran the football as the feature back and had 18 carries for 82 yards and a touchdown.
If Jones and Barber can’t go next week, Choice will make for a fabulous play next week against the Broncos.
Panthers Passing Game Struggles
The Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme struggled in different spots of the game. Both of his interceptions could have been avoided if his receivers would have fought for the football. While Delhomme continue to struggle he did find tight end Dante Rosario for a nice 25 yards touchdown to make things interesting in the middle of the game. Rosario helped his team say in the game for awhile with three receptions for 58 yards and the touchdown
For a game that was close most of the time, this team needed to keep the Cowboys offense off of the field. If they ran the football they would have accomplished that goal.
Hopefully, Carolina will correct there mistakes and come off of their bye week with strong play in week 5.
